What I’m working on: a pseudo-meditation pillow!

I call this a "pseudo" yoga pillow because a proper meditation pillow (also called a yoga pillow) should be filled with buckwheat, and (aside from not having several pounds of buckwheat just sitting around) the stitches are a fairly loose and made with a very chunky yarn (which I bought before I thought of this),… Continue reading What I’m working on: a pseudo-meditation pillow!

What I’m working on: a gorgeous sweater/dress for my gorgeous girl!

This time, the sweater/dress goes to the lovely Kathleen, and I'm adding to it all the things I didn't add to my own.

I found the pattern here: https://moralefiber.blog/2018/06/13/basic-bralette-tutorial/ and so far it's incredibly easy to follow. I'm intending this solely as an around-the-house sort of item, so I promise you'll never need fear me modeling it on this blog 🙂 I… Continue reading What I’m working on: a super cute bralette!

What I’m working on: lovely blue bobble stitch dish cloths

Other than finishing my exciting new napa cardigan (I'm down to the sleeves now, guys!!), I'm making a set of bobble stitch cotton dishcloths for my mother-in-law this week. Her heart is with the ocean, so blue bobble stitch seems the perfect thing for her! What about you, friends?  What are you working on this… Continue reading What I’m working on: lovely blue bobble stitch dish cloths
